Researchers at Osaka University‘s Oshiro Lab are working on a “true 3D display”. The so-called 360-Degree Observable Fog Display makes it possible to walk around the object being shown and view it in 3D from all viewpoints – Sony’s cool stereoscopic 3D display comes to mind (we’ve covered Sony’s prototype last year.
